Transport Task Force (TTF) 2011

The ultimate goal of the work of the Transport Task Force is a predictive understanding of plasma transport leading, in the end, to transport control. As we have pointed out previously, to achieve success in transport science, it is essential to characterize local fluctuations and transport in toroidal plasma, to understand the basic mechanisms responsible for transport, and ultimately, to control these transport processes. These goals must be pursued in multiple areas, including ion thermal transport, electron thermal transport, particle transport, momentum transport, and the physics of the H mode and edge pedestal. Demonstrating our understanding requires multiple, successful, quantitative tests of theory, simulation and modeling using experiments in fusion-relevant and basic plasmas.
